Emm Emm Eclairs!!
I made these eclairs for my mother-in-law's birthday. It was the first time I made them but I have to say they were not difficult to make. They were a bit time consuming but the taste was worth the time! One of the most time consuming parts of the recipe was the time my VERY PATIENT husband and I spent in Michaels trying to figure out what size tip to use on the pastry bag!! The recipe does not specify, which caused a problem for a pastry bag virgin like myself! :) Thank God my husband has internet access on his phone, bc we ended up downloading several youtube videos to find out what sort of tip to use. Eventally we found a video of someone using the coupler piece which is the piece that you attach the actual tip to. So in summary... Don't use a tip on these eclairs, just use the plastic ring (coupler), and always carry a phone with internet access for emergencies such as these! :) BTW, I used the large size coupler. Here's a link for the recipe! Enjoy! http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/gale-gand/chocolate-eclairs-recipe/index.html
